The text and illustrations complement each other, so that the reader can begin with either the object or the word. All the main types of each object of furniture are featured, together with their methods of construction, their parts and their decoration, both formal and surface. Even more information is provided by an illustrated timechart of furniture periods, brief biographies of 70 furniture designers, and descriptions of more than 100 furniture styles
